I am, Leo, the writer of Trans*Life Zine. This website is one of my online creative voices. Around 2006, I wrote a blog called TransCurrents. That blog focused on the trans-related current events around the SF Bay Area. I had fun with it and then I put it aside.
A few years later, I became a co-leader of a support group for ftms of color. That experience increased my desire to connect with trans folks in general. Connecting with other people with a trans history, even though different from my history, puts me in a happy place. I believe there is a joy to be found when interacting with people who had to consciously create their lives. They are making lemonade out of lemons.
Fast forward: I decided to write another blog that was more open and fun and featured a variety of Trans*Life news, with a bit of “pretty” thrown in. I hope you enjoy Trans*Life — a digitally-clean, computer-lit place on the web by, for and about Trans*Life.

As you can see from the links above, I am the social type. I enjoy using the power of social media for good. Let me know if you or your organization want some assistance with your social media projects
